The media is reporting the death of James Owen Sullivan, aka ‘The Rev. Monday at his house of natural causes at the age of 28. He was the drummer and back up vocalist for the heavy metal band Avenged Sevenfold.

It was widely accepted that “The Rev” was one of the best drummers in the business.

Unfortunetly, he was also living to the rock and roll lifestyle that is summed up in the saying….sex,drugs, and rock and roll. He was an admitted cocaine abuser, and had used several illegal narcotics.

An autopsy has been scheduled to positively identify the reason for his death, but has been temporarily listed as natural causes.

I enjoy listening to a hardcore rock group like “Avenged Sevenfold”, their music, and groups like them sometimes inspire me in a creative way…

I send out my condolences to his family and friends.
